Los Angeles, California – Cadillac has unveiled the 2013 XTS at the Los Angeles Auto Show, the newest addition to the Cadillac luxury sedan and one that will be built in Oshawa, Ontario.
The new model will go on sale in the spring of 2012 as the most technologically-advanced production car in the brand’s history. The new model is larger than the current CTS and is positioned directly above it in Cadillac’s revamped lineup.
The XTS also marks the debut of CUE, or Cadillac User Experience, a comprehensive in-vehicle experience that merges intuitive design with auto industry-first controls and commands for information and media control. It uses a 203-mm screen in the centre stack and includes several industry firsts, including capacitive-touch control with proximity sensing, gesture recognition, and natural voice recognition.
“The Cadillac XTS represents a new formula for luxury, driven by advanced technology,” said Don Butler, vice-president of Cadillac marketing. “XTS showcases the evolution of our Art & Science philosophy, merging the best technical ideas with the continued refinement of Cadillac design.”
It will be the only luxury sedan with standard Magnetic Ride Control and features a 3.6-litre direct-injection engine with advanced all-wheel drive system.
